The MAIN reason I was so excited about carving pumpkins was because I knew I was going to get to snack on the seeds. I also valued the time I got to spend with my husband.
I cleaned out the pumpkins, saved the seeds and washed the seeds to rid them of the orange pumpkin goop. I laid them out on an (olive) oiled baking sheet and roasted them in the oven at 300 degrees to dry them out. I used salt and pepper to taste. I baked them in the oven for another 20 minutes until they were golden.
